Lacking the polish and coherence worthy of its cast, Nobel Son is no prize winner.

Nobel Son was one of my most unpleasant filmgoing experiences of 2008 (and in a year like this, that's saying something).

I enjoyed Eliza Dushku's mad poetess, probably for the wrong reasons, but with a project this meager, you take your artful sneers and scenic diversions where you can get them.

Smug and glib and generally apathetic as to who gets what in the end, so long as it seems clever at the time.

One of those misbegotten clunkers where just about every creative decision isn't just wrong but tone-deaf.

Nobel Son contains precisely one funny bit, but the film is pokey and unoriginal.

Like the worst of holiday quarrels, it's much more irritating than interesting, and by the end of it you'll be filled with as much seasonal cheer as Ebenezer Scrooge.

I had high hopes for Nobel Son at the halfway point, but it ultimately really completely collapses under the weight of its clever twists.

Is it a thriller? Is it a heist movie? Is it a comedy?

Nobel Son wins the prize for best Guy Ritchie copycat.

An absolutely abysmal crime flick.

With all of the potential Oscar bait this month, NOBEL SON is well out of it's league. A few quirky bits of humor can't save this lazy attempt at making a hip kidnapping movie.

An undignified mess that should embarrass Rickman and everyone else involved.

An aggressively noisy exercise in style over substance about nasty people doing nasty things to one another in (sigh) Southern California.

This bogus cutting-edge thriller is obnoxious and repellent in any direction it stands, mistaking distasteful tonal changes for cinematic razzle dazzle.

Except for a mildly engaging heist scene in the middle of the movie, the story never gets within a mile of the Quentin Tarantino classics it tries to evoke.

Oh boy does this movie have problems. From its wall-to-wall electronica score to the blandly executed sex scenes.

Peter Sobczynski

Is there a way that I can offer a formal apology to Guy Ritchie for insinuating that "Rocknrolla," was an ugly, stupid, violent and incoherent mess of a crime film when it actually comes across like "The Asphalt Jungle" when compared to this mess?
